Estate Planning

If you have started a family, you should start estate planning. While it may be uncomfortable to think about these circumstances, thorough estate planning will reduce the burden and stress on your family at a time of illness or death. If you have young adult children who are off to college or starting their first job, you can and should still protect them with powers of attorney for financial and healthcare matters and wills. If you had estate plan documents from many years ago, it is time to update them.

Business Law

San Francisco is the home of many, many startups. If you’re starting a company, a business lawyer can help you to do it right. If you are forming an S- or C-corporation or limited liability company, for example, you must prepare bylaws or an operating agreement and other documents. Understanding these documents yourself requires you take time and energy away from growing your fledgling startup. A business law attorney can help you choose the right type of entity and prepare the corporation for you and fill out the appropriate documents to create your business, so you spend less time learning the legal process and more time on creating a world-changing product.
